Riflesso sull'arco


Riflesso sull’arco is [...] a tightly structured succession of static, sonorous, softly tinted harmonies, interspersed with small eruptions. This musical equivalent of a Hitchcock beauty like Grace Kelly is coloured by a bass clarinet, a trombone, a cello and a piano, which has very few ‘ordinary’ notes, but instead, lots of bowed string sounds and ominous bangs on the framework. [...] Just with the première of this new Rijnvos alone does the Ives Ensemble present an equally extravagant as fascinating concert, one that raises existential questions.
